Type out the word you need, then go to SHAPES and use a square.
Set the square to the desired size, center with the word.
Move square or rectangle up to the bottom of the word so its touching, then select the rectangle and word then go to Edit then combine.
Then set the cut to cut outside shape path.

Yes, sometimes if the letters are too small you can pocket cut the inside instead of cutting outside shape path. It does a good job and you don’t have to worry about the small pieces jamming up your router.
Select the object and go to Apps, scroll down to you see Shape Exploder and select that. Using the Shape Exploder App will break apart your object. Then you can select the insides of the letters to pocket cut.
